Dr. Hyun Bae,
A Pioneer of Minimally Invasive Research

Dr. Bae Teaching Patient About Spine

Dr. Bae is changing the way spinal surgery is done. He is currently pioneering a study on the use of stem cells for spinal restoration, and is one of only five doctors to receive a significant grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This $2.8 million grant was awarded to aid in the development of the first-ever imaging technique to diagnose patients suffering from neck and back pain.

In addition to being one of the first doctors to use growth factor tissue engineering for intervertebral discs, Dr. Bae’s success with multi-level artificial disc replacement for both the lumbar and cervical spine and use of innovative medical devices for minimally invasive spinal surgery has allowed thousands of patients return to their normal lifestyles, pain-free.
